"...I not only use this for my little guy as a shampoo and wash, but I also use it as a shampoo! My hair has never looked so good!..."

" great, smells great, and does not break out or dry out my son's skin!...."

(New Formula) The smell is horrible and you have to use more of it to get a good lather and now she has dry scalp!....."

tends to leave my daughter's hair very dry and tangles easily. It is also drying out her scalp and causing dandruff...."

"...After baths, sometimes my 9 month old son would have red splotches on his body. His skin was irritated and it may have been from the fragrance or the limonene....."

Our Final Assessment:

Burt's Bees Baby Bee Tear-Free Shampoo & Wash gets mixed reviews from customers. Although about 75% of the reviews we found were positive, the more recent ones were largely negative - apparently due to a recent change in formula, so it appears that the newer formula is not nearly as well-liked as the old one, causing isues from rashes to dry skin. It also gets a moderate risk rating of 4 from the EWG safety database - although this is based on undisclosed ingredients in the fragrance. It is a 98.9% natural product, and the size of the bottle is quite good for the price and a mostly natural product. However, based on other ratings and the negative trend in recent customer reviews, we gave it an overall rating of 6.5.
